Another Trip to Longwood Gardens

April 27, 2017

I took another trip to Longwood Gardens on Wednesday.  The weather was - perfect!  Mostly cloudy with a very light intermittent breeze.


There's a beautiful hedge of lilacs, but I wasn't able to get to them during the last trip because that area is still under construction where they're updating the fountains.  I asked a volunteer if there were any more lilacs in the garden, and he told me if I went into the topiary area, I'd be able to get to the lilacs from the opposite side.


I'm so thankful I spoke to him.  They had several different varieties, and the air was heavy with their fragrance.  This image is my favorite.  It's a variety with double blooms.  Isn't it beautiful?


Camera Settings:

     Exposure:  1/50 sec at f/11 (on tripod)

     Focal Length:  105 mm

     ISO:  400



     I only made a few adjustments to this image:

          - Nik Detail Extractor, just on the foreground flowers and leaves, 17%.

          - Topaz Impressions 2 - Concrete Chalk layer mask on the background at 35%.


 (Clicking on the image will open a new full-sized window for viewing or purchase.)
